like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to unanother must be equal, as well. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright, young students and engineers are listed in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. we know that america thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work. when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. we are true to our creed when a little girl born in to the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else. >> and joining me now with his reaction to the president's speech yesterday, democratic congressman from maryland, chris van hollen. thank you so much for your time. >> it's great to be with you, tamron. >> as have perhaps read yourself or heard "the new york times" is calling the president's unapologetic, evolved. we ask the question, is this the liberal reagan? what is your thoughts on this
we ask of each citizen is to respect the law, and i think that you and the rest must take care and must beware of that. another issue, it's about syria -- >> no, let's talk about the women's issue, because it's an important one. this is not, first of all, nobody in the west is trying to get women to take their veils off. the issue as described in the arab development report written by an arab woman is that there are three great deficits in the arab world x the third one -- and the third one is the rights of women. this is written by an arab about the arab world with enormous amounts of data. by any comparison with the rest of the world, the status of women in the arab world is poor. so, you know, i think part of solving the problem and dealing with it is to acknowledge that it exists. my own humble suggestion would be that you can make this into an anti-western crusade, but the truth of the matter is the women in the arab world deserve better. [applause] [speaking in native tongue] >> translator: but i have not, i have not blamed the west. i have not blamed the west, and i don'
also expected to attend. even as the president convenes this meeting, a law enforcement backlash continues. a wisconsin sheriff is now encouraging citizens to take up arms and not solely rely on law enforcement for protection. >> with officers laid off and furloughs, simply calling 911 and waiting is no longer your best option. you can beg for mercy from a violent criminal, hide undered bed, or you can fight back. with you reprepared? consider taking a certified safety course in handling a firearm so you can defend yourself until we can get there. >> that's a radio ad running right now in wisconsin. sheriff david clarke defended that add on cnn's "starting point." he said it's necessary because of budget constraints. >> and last year with the budget cut, i had to lay off 42 people. the city of milwaukee police department that i work with, in conjunction with them anyway for public safety in milwaukee county, this year is furloughing 1,500 officers three days each. that's 4,500 fewer officer days that will be spent on the street. >> sheriff clarke is joining other sheriffs and buc
with these budgets. it emphasizes, start to make long-term changes in the law with respect to the way these entitlements work. and if you do that you can change over a long time the direction of how much these programs like social security, medicare, medicaid go into debt. [talking over each other] >> i just wanted to come in here. they would not even consider another ratings downgrade last the medium term budget was not satisfactory, so they're not even looking for a short term. they're not even concerned about the timeframe. >> look, we can talk about all the unknowns. we do have something that our not -- something that is known. americans are getting older fillies 76 million baby boomers, 10,000 a day or so going to retire. number two, we will have to pay off the debt we're racking up. we do know that we have a problem. no, steve's point is well taken. in fact, as he recalls, it was back during the early 80's 30 years ago that ronald reagan when with alan greenspan and congress ted gets social security on a path that will leave it away from going over the cliff. that was a good lon
are here without their papers to somehow get right with the law. right now, i mean, if you commit an offense other than immigration, you can, you know, pay a penalty and move on with you life. not so with immigration. right now, for example, we have 2 million migrant farm workers about in the united states. 70% to 80% of them are here without their papers. we have 5,000 permanent residence visas for people without a college diploma. we have husbands and wives that are separated for half a decade. that's not acceptable. we need to reform the system for the economy and for american families. >> and what she told me is this is a real imperative. what's new, it also is now an imperative for republicans. the election results from last november made clear the republican party needs a message for latino, asian-americans and immigrant groups if they have any chance of recapturing the white house. >> scott, this is carla marinucci. what's your thoughts on this? we've seen paul ryan, marco rubio extend a hand to president obama so to speak and suggest they are ready to talk about immigratio
concealed weapons on campuses, on school campuses, college campuses is actually against the law, is that right? >> reporter: i couldn't tell you about college campuses, but i will tell you there is a high school here in texas where teachers are carrying concealed weapons. that decision was made because of the remoteness of the school. it's not announced what teachers carry, but it is a decision they made because of their circumstances and because of the distance that law enforcement is away from them. i couldn't tell you the specifics about this particular campus. >> janet shamlian reporting for lone star college. we'll be back to you very soon. let's bring in former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, we heard this may have been some kind of dispute between two individuals with some being caught up in the cross fire. what are you learning from your sources? >> well, what i have heard unofficially, martin, and you and i know how confusing the reporting is in these stories initially, was that at least one of the two shooters allegedly had a weapon in a backpack and another had w
point, but what was really prior to that, there will be a change in state laws. there is a change. you see, in wisconsin where collective bargaining rights are now limited, and i think you'll have that throughout the country, and i think pople will support that because, again, there are wages and benefits and pensions that the state and local governments can't afford. the point is a good one, but that's the way i see that. melissa: you know, of course, more right to work states where if you were not compelled to join the union, a lot chose not to. could be because they thought it was not in their best benefit or couldn't afford it. the average membership fee was $85 5 in 20 # 11. as soon as you didn't have to be part of a union anymore, people might have said, even if they wanted to, you know what, i just need that money. >> well, that's true. i think that in 2012, there's about 1.8 million jobs that were created, most of those jobs are nonunion jobs, the right to work laws, giving them the opportunity to be a member or not, but also, in my view, because some unions can sap the entrepr
now set to announce a framework that could bring sweeping changes in our immigration laws and this would be historic. we'll see if they get it done though. hope the weekend was fantastic. >> it was. how about yours? bill: decent. martha: happy monday, good morning, everybody. i'm martha maccallum. the details of this bill need to be worked out. the senators want to cover four main goals in this. it includes something you heard a lot about, a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants already living here. and the establishment of a employment verification program to prevent employers from hiring illegal immigrants. something like that already exists. they want to do changes to that. also an agricultural worker program in this country. bill: steve centanni, leads our coverage. he is live in washington. what happens exactly today, steve? good morning. >> reporter: well, good morning, bill. a bipartisan group of eight senators will unveil its new immigration proposal here on capitol hill. it is a plan as you said that lays out a path to citizenship for 11 million undocu
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion
an immigration law we can live with. >> i think the time is right. >> we have to stop being the stupid party. >> i strongly favor english being the official language of government. >> i would build a fence on every inch of the southern border. >> if you say that we should not educate children, i don't think you have a heart. >> well, i support the arizona law. >> what you need to do is attack their benefits. >> it would have electrified barbed wire at the top. >> we need to end the practice of anchor babies in the united states. >> and yes, mr. president, it would have alligators in it. >> we are losing! >> we are losing. >>> we begin with all eyes on the border, and what could be the first big legislative action and fight of 2013. just a week after the president's second term inauguration, a consensus over immigration has developed at an unusual speed. the president is due to roll out his own immigration overhaul tuesday in las vegas, but this afternoon a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the framework for a major reform bill, including a pathway to citizenship for 11 million illegal im
in the border states, law enforcement officials and community leaders would assess when enforcement measures had been completed and then the path to citizenship for those undocumented workers. still vague exactly how this commission will decide whether border security benchmarks have been met. were there specific metrics are is it a subjective deal? and when does the clock start on that pathway to citizenship? when it does, in order to gain a probationary status, they would have to register with the federal government, pay a fine and back taxes and pass a background check to make sure they don't have a criminal background, violent history. to gain permanent residency, individuals would have to pay more fine, demonstrate a work history and current employment and they'd have to go behind the back of the line behind every lawful green card applicant. it provide for immigrant who is came to the u.s. as children and those who are agricultural workers. they do not have to go back to their home country. the most important i kquestion be answered, do knows who are dead set against amnesty believes this
sensible gun laws. >> hundreds gathered in san francisco to show saladarity with the d.c. marchers. the so-called million moms stroll included fathers, brothers, uncles, aunts and more. organizers say they are hoping to tap into the power of families to create change. >>> i just want to get some commonsense gun safety solutions so we don't have to go through this again and again and again. >> the group one million moms for gun control is a grassroots organization that was formed after the shooting at sandy hook elementary school in connecticut, which left 20 children and six educators dead. >>> in advertising banner meant to promote discount haircuts ended up cutting power to thousands of san francisco customers today when it fell from the sky and landed on some pg&e lines. here you can see the banner dangling from the power lines. witnesses say they saw it fall from the back of a small plane and land on the liens around noon. that normally busy intersection was shut down while crews dealt with the situation. >> i saw the plane banner carrying the plane circling. and the banner kind of f
for this short-term extension is to just get congress to actually follow the law that congress wrote in 1974 which is to pass a budget by april 15. we're not saying what kind of budget they have to pass. just pass a budget. reason is the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good thorough, vigorous and honest debate of what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. we actually have a law that says we should budget. all we're saying is follow that law and that's why the short- term extension before you today. i'll let the rest of it speak for itself. >> thank you very much. mr. levin. >> first, welcome, mr. chairman. >> thank you. i think this is the first -- >> i think this is the first time i have been before you. the first time any of us has been in the chair. >> thank you. i hope i'll do good enough and make you want to come back. >> i'll come back whether i want to or not. \[laughter] >> we still we

. the law will restrict our ability to use flexible spending accounts. it will raise taxes on life saving medical devices. >> congressman ryan possibly a presidential contender in 2016 says republicans should be prepared for the president to try to quote de legitimize them. but he urged them to quote be smart. >> if we want to promote conservativism we need to use every tool at our disposal. sometimes we have to jeekt the president's proposal. that time might come more than once. sometimes we have to make them better. the president will bait us. he will portray us as cruel and unyielding. >> the white house says the president wants both parties to come together and act for the good of the country. press secretary jay carney said the president believed that quote we need to capri miss not be absolutists but agree the need to act on behalf of the american people should compel us to make reasonable compromise while we stick to our principle. that's the approach he has taken since the end of the white house and approach he will take in the second tex. ryan says he doesn't think republicans ar

[ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> this has always been an uphill fight. this has never been easy. this is the hardest of the hard. >> california senator dianne feinstein acknowledging her bill banning assault weapons faces an uphill challenge. joining me is democratic senator richard blumenthal. it is good to see you. thanks for being here. >> thank you, kraig. >> you just heard what senator feinstein said. what reforms do you think we can see enacted? >> an assault weapon ban and a prohibition on high clip capacities is doable. >> you think it is doable? >> i think it is. more likely background checks for all firearms purchases. right now 40% of them involve no background checks. convicted felon, fugitive, drug addict can walk into a store and buy a shopping cart full of ammunition and pay for it no q
about what he called our generation's task which was equal pay, gay marriage, repeal of voter i.d. laws, immigration reform and gun control. you know, everything but deficit, debt, spending and the america's economy. jobs and the economy was passed by rather quickly. we're in an economic recovery. that was about it. so, yeah, i think congressman ryan called it right. the president's agenda at least from the state of the union address was overwhelmingly liberal and not connected at all to deficit, debt, spending and america's economy and jobs. this is a legitimate disagreement between the two parties and legitimate disagreement between his president and the republican opponents on what the priorities ought to be but it is pretty clear what the president's priorities were. jon: this president racked up a lot of debt in first four years in office and got reelected. maybe he is assuming that the american people are fine with going the way it has been going? >> well i think, he talked about cutting the deficit during the campaign, promised that he would cap $2.50 in spending cuts for every d

laws have been enacted restricting abortion rights and curbing the number ever abortion providers. i want abortion to be legal, safe, and rare, but restricting access makes it rare for the wrong reason and drives many women to self-administered abortions that endanger their lives and reproductive future. in a nation where 40% of children are born to unwed mothers, we are hurting our nation by making family planning harder. i thank god and country that when i fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me and keep me on a path toward building a strong family i have now and i pray that safety net remains in place. people who have children when they're prepared leads to stronger children, stronger families, and thus stronger adults and a stronger america. and now a man who is a good husband and a great father, according to his own account, martin bashir. >> toure, what can i say. thank you very much for the obscene compliment and good afternoon. it's friday, january the 25th, and the republican national committee has learned its lesson. the problem isn't them, it's those am

star of the republican party saying basically the same thing, making an emother-in-law argument for not separating people and understanding the things they contribute to the american economy and society. if the republicans hold up the legislation, is it enough for the republicans that they have spokes people like marco rubio out there? does that build enough of a tent for hispanics to come in? >> not if they have a bill. latinos are clear on this. no bill, no support. rubio talked about it being a piecemeal. it has to be aim comprehensive large package, but i think they're going to get there, and the main reason is not just the election returns and 71% that obama got of latino voters. it's that business is for this. even in the republican districts that don't care about the votes that obama got. they do care about what their local business leaders think, and they want a bill. i think actually this is going to be quite a bit easier than a lot of people think. >> business is -- >> i never thought i would call jonathan naive. >> i know, but what's happened -- >> what's the differen

of congress, fogs, members of the executive branch the bodyguard of the people who make our laws. the bottom line, the people who are banning ordinary americans from owning these weapons will be protected by people carrying the weapons. >> a weird double standard and specifically this legislation would do this, let's put out exactly what it would do, and we have that here. so this is the-- it would prohibit the sale, manufacture and transporttation of 157 more commonly-- it would have the magazine owes of ten rounds. >> that's something-- >> we saw similar to that in new york state the passing that andrew cuomo just passed, seven rounds and police are upset about that and they're having to remove three rounds of the chambers of their magazines so that they don't violate the very law. >> well, in new york state there was an apartmently an oversight in writing the law that did not exempt law enforcement from it and that's going to be changed. bottom line we've been told repeatedly by the vice-president and many others in the administration, you don't need these weapons to defend yourself. a sh

the law in places like virginia and ohio. >> but professor peterson, on the one hand we have the re-elected chair saying he wants to reach out. he wants to welcome everyone, and on the other hand republicans are seeking to rig the system. i mean, who is being honest here? which side of the party are we supposed to believe? >> well, listen, the move to sort of establish this federal gerrymandering, one, should open the american populace's eyes to the way in which the states have been gerrymandered, but, two, it smacks of the same kind of sin stesh strategy and the political moves the republicans have been making recently, and i think we have to trust that because that's indicative of the kind of behavior they've engaged in in the past. they do have to stop talking about reaching out and actually reach out, right? what they really need, and i don't know if there are any strategists or consultants who can do this for them, they need some cultural competence in their party. they need to understand how the culture of the people operate in these shifting demographic times and without thos
, because i agree with you, there ought to be given more leeway, but under current law, they were limited. host: secretary clinton before the house foreign affairs committee. your reaction from the testimony. chesapeake, virginia, pamela, independent line. caller: i'm glad to be on your show. host: glad to have you on. go ahead. caller: i have a couple of comments. regarding the republicans, their aggressiveness towards secretary clinton and their questioning i thought was appropriate for the crimes that were committed. however, on the other side of the aisle, the democrats were too accommodating and skirting the issues of the crime committed. and i think that that shows total bipartisan problems. it shows that there is still a total political posture. i think if you watched from the perspective of the viewer from television, secretary clinton each time she was questioned by a democrat, smiled and smiled with lots of gleam in her eye towards them. whereas with the republicans questioning, there was not that smile, there was not that pleasure of questioning. and the reason being is because
. >> there seem to be a pretty broad discussion, he wanted to make sure that those who under the law are able to be constitutionally denied access to a weapon, like somebody who is adjudicated, not cable bill because of the mental capacity and or a convicted felon, and or somebody who has been guilty of domestic violence under the law, they are not allowed to own a weapon. they are able to be denied ownership of a weapon. one of the problems pointed out was there was an adjudication of the gunmen who committed the crime at the virginia tech. he was able to go out and purchase two weapons about one month apart. we talked about the nation of the universal background checks. we talked about making sure that state equipped the system that washington has on prohibitive persons on file. so if you go to a gun dealer or dick's sporting goods to buy a weapon, use what your card or this what it and find out if you are part of the prohibited class of people. we talked a lot about that. we also talked a great deal because we have three people, one psychiatrist and two others who have been a great deal of
playback of the vice president and president from their meeting today. take a listen. >> law enforcement officials all across the country who obviously share our deep concern about issues of gun safety and how we can protect our communities and keep our kids safe. you know, a couple of weeks ago i appeared along with joe to present the administration's ideas in terms of steps that we have to take. and i issued a number of executive actions that could be taken unilaterally in order to improve our collection of data, to make sure that we're coordinating more effectively with state and local governments, and to do everything that we could to improve the issue of gun safety and to make our communities safer. but as we've indicated before, the only way that we're going to be able to do everything that needs to be done is with the cooperation of congress. and that means passing serious laws that restrict the access and availability of assault weapons and magazine clips that aren't necessary for hunters and sportsmen and those responsible gun owners who are out there. it means that we are serio
a couple of former governors, harvard law professor, engineer, to name a few. while they have each accomplished so much already, their greatest achievements are still ahead of them. i know they'll look back with satisfaction at the work we do together in the united states senate. our caucus and our country faces immense challenges. as we go through tests and trials, this diverse group in the senate will be united by a single objective, to fight for fairness and balance on behalf of the middle class. we're going to continue to work on old rules -- excuse me, madam president. we'll continue to work with, i will with the republican leader on a package of reforms that i hope we can agree on. as i've said before, if we don't agree, then we're going to do something as a democratic caucus alone. i do remain cautiously optimistic we'll be able to move forward on a bipartisan basis. i hope we can do that. if we do that -- and i'll have more to say about that if in fact we can do that -- we're not going to get everything we want. the republicans aren't going to get everything they want. but
